A tattoo is a permanent form of an image imprinted on your skin with the help of dyes or pigments and a needle. The tattoo artist uses a machine that looks like a sewing machine. The machine contains one or two needles that inject inking droplets just under your skin.
Any arm, right or left, would be good for a tattoo. The choice boils down to your personal preferences. Just make sure your skin is free of moles.
How to make tattooing a safe procedure

- Ensure that the tattoo artist uses fresh needles, new dye, sterile trays, and containers for your tattoo.
- Make sure that the artist sterilizes the non-disposable instruments/equipment well in the autoclave before using them for you.
